I see a lube plate, but no dimensional data...  What did you do to weather it?  Looks a tad streaky.

Nice idea to stencil over the PC, though...

I am familiar with the Rappahannock River and even Tappahannock, Virginia, but what is the Rappannahock Terminal?  Freelanced, typo, or both?  ;)

Paul,

Nice job, even if you are missing a few details. Funny, me being the most positive on a post...

Is that an old Life Like car?
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

I think it looks great! Old paint does streak too!
